A Life Lesson from a little frog
This is a story about a group of frogs that were hopping along through the woods when two of them fell into a pit. The frogs saw how deep the pit was, and they realized there was no hope. They told the two frogs in the pit that they were as good as dead. The two fin the pit were positive thinkers though, so they ignored the naysayers and tried to jump out anyway.
The frogs up above were sure they were right, and they keep shouting for the other two to quit jumping and accept their fate. After a while, one of the frogs became so discouraged by all the negative talk that he finally lost hope. He quit jumping, fell down, and died. The second from didn’t. He kept jumping, seemingly undeterred by the waves of negativity being showered down upon him. He continued jumping with his might. The negativity crowd renewed its efforts, yelling even louder for him to stop the foolish jumping, give up, and die.
The little guy kept at it, jumping a little higher with each attempt. Finally, He made it out. When he got out, the other frogs said,” why did you keep jumping? Couldn’t hear us? It took a few moments for the successful jumper to figure out what they were saying.
Then he replied,” I’m DEAF. All this time, I thought you were encouraging me.” You are going to encounter plenty of frogs in life, Do not listen to them. Don’t for one moment believe that you cannot succeed, that you will never rise above your negative circumstances, that your life cannot change, that you are stuck with a negative outlook forever.
